SILVER & BLACK: In Oakland, Paul Rosynsky reported the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority on Friday agreed to spend $1M "studying new stadium proposals" for the Raiders. The proposal, dubbed "Coliseum City," calls for construction of an "entertainment and sports district on the 1,000 acres of land where the O.co Coliseum and Oracle Arena now stand." The project "models itself after the vibrant L.A. Live development." The Raiders have "agreed to work with city and county leaders in seeking studies to determine if Coliseum City is feasible." The team said that it will "help fund" part of the $1M approved for two studies (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 1/27).
